I am agreeing with you Ultra, I got my V6 for that very reason, less than folks were spending on EcoBoxs; yet I didn't have to hear folks say get 4:10 gears or go home, I would ignore them. A 2011+ V6 is a great Car over all the echo boxes in my opinion in that i delivers a great ride, great performance, has great options, and holds its own on MPG as well as being able to pull into a local car show and sit down and have folks look at it !

I don't really think you're "giving up on life" when you buy a Focus. If that's yer bag, there's a nice 252 hp Focus ST, which is a pretty neat little car, for having wrong wheel drive and everything.

I don't judge the interests of other people. I ask questions when they make claims and invite them to explain their reasoning. This is often interesting.

I think if someone buys a focus (or camry, or whatever) with no NEED for it and spending more money they've given up on life. I'm talking one car here, not like they have a Ferrari in the garage.

Mileage update: 18 city and 30-35 hwy. That's babying it. In the city I keep under 1000 rpms and go through the gears. On the highway I keep it under 2000 rpms and 60 mph and go through the gears. But seriously who wants to do that all the time with 420 hp under the hood! I didn't buy it for mpg I bought it because I love mustangs and the hp!

GIDDYUP!!

But it's sweet to get it when you want it! That's cool you can still pull good MPG when you want to. In this day and age, it's absurd some cars can't get the 3.7 (or 5.0) MPG and they have half (or less!) Of the power.

searching; seriously, someone else has probably asked before.

That's exactly what I'm talking about. That's terrible. Oh well. Still worth it every time I'm behind the wheel.

I jusr recently drove my 2014 gt to washington stateto take my father in laws ashes home. He wanted to be spread up on mt.rainer 5000 mile rou d trip and I got between 24 and 26.7 mpg and was driving 80-100 mph. Took 3 days each way but I made that drive several time when I was in the army and got out of it but that was in 1984 - 1988. Was a lot better ride in the mustang than I thought it would be.

21 mpg combined. the mpg vs fun to drive relation has never been so thrilling in my life !

I suppose that a lower reer axle ratio would improve gas mileage due to lower rpm on high way, but I am just fine now.

I'm with ARTU on this one as well, concerning the V6.

If you consider the options on a base Mustang compared to a typical econobox, you're looking at a top trim Civic or Corolla, essentially. Which is almost the same price.

Drives better, looks better, is safer in a crash, puts a big grin on your face driving it, and in my case, I just got 28mpg combined for my last tank. That's in Los Angeles rush hour traffic. Out on the highway, it gets closer to 33-35 on long road trips. So it also gets pretty close to econobox MPG as well.

The base model, at 18-19K after incentives, is an economy car destroyer.

22 on the highway, 18-19 average with the track pack. The 5w-50 oil and 3.73 rear definitely don't help gas mileage lol

There's no way in the world the viscosity of your oil is going to make any noticeable difference to your mpg. Just my $.02

Tranny fluid has shown to make a difference: http://ecomodder.com/forum/showthrea...wners-128.html

I have no data to state it, but I would only use synthetic if I had a newer vehicle.

If I watch the AVG MPG gauge I can get 20 mpg driving to and from work (about 50 miles a day) in Houston rush hour traffic. If I drive for fun on the same route I get about 18 mpg. On the open road I get about 19 mpg because I can't keep my foot out of it. If you watch the meter you can keep above the bar with your driving and get better mileage.
